visiting from Florida, we wanted great lobster and seafood. This was awful! The lobster roll I got was on a hot dog bun out of the bag. The lobster looked as if it were the leftovers they slapped together and was tasteless. For $25 this was robbery. My husbands shrimp salad sandwich turned out to be fried shrimp on another... More

Poor service, marginal food at best. Three of our party had the lobster salad. It looked great, but the lobster had little flavor. The stuffed shrimp was nothing special and overpriced.

My husband and I stumbled across Spanky's and had such a fabulous lunch. I had gotten the lobster roll which was absolutely delicious. It was too much for me to eat. The lobster was piled high on a grilled bun. My husband had gotten fish & chips and stated it was the best fish &chips he had ever eaten.

Service was very good. Great view if you sit outside or get a window. Grilled shrimp was tough and very dry. Salad just okay. The other meals in the group were not great. Won't go there again.

How rude! My husband and I wanted to sit down, get a soft drink, look at the menu and think about having lunch but when I said we just wanted a drink I was told by a very rude woman that I had to go to the takeaway counter around the corner. Even if we hadn't chosen to have food... More

Wife and I spent recent 80 degree weekend on the Cape and Spankys was very busy. The gal that ran the outdoor desk, she is something else getting it done for the patrons and Spankys, she was amazing!! Our server Judy was kind and attentive as well. Food was very good!! Highly recommend this place!!
